We’re baaack!

October 21, 2011

After an extremely long maternity leave combined then with kids going back to school, family vacations, and the sick bug getting us a few times – we are finally back at Care Hound. We have missed posting so we are excited to start writing again, get our guest blogger’s posts up, and of course to get back to our Facebook page with all the fun stuff we find out there in the wonderful world wide web.

It’s so hard to believe that Halloween is just around the corner – and then even scarier to think that Thanksgiving and Christmas will come and go before we know it! But we do LOVE this time of year and all the fun that comes along with it. Every year we host Halloween at our house. I make up chili, we have mass amounts of food, and a few of our close friends come over. I think in all we never have less than 15 trick or treaters from little babies, to the big {almost too cool for Halloween – but thankfully not yet} middle schoolers. I love the packed house and the kids running all over the place. They all go trick or treating – they start out together in our circle, then the babies come back, then after a trip around the block the little kids usually come back, and then after the older kids have made sure to hit all 400 houses in the neighborhood, they return – candy filled pillow covers in tow.  It’s one of my favorite nights of the year and so this year I have been doing my research, trying to find some fun {but also extremely simple} Halloween craft, decor, and food ideas.  We have a couple listed below, but check out our Facebook page to see more of our favorites!

Apple Smiles (

  Less than 4 ingredients and a snack I know my kids would love.

Cloud costume {found on}

I love this DIY cloud costumes – it is so sweet!!

DIY leaf lantern {found on}

I think this would be a fun project to do with the kiddos and light up on Hallowen night.
